This picture shows about how the day has gone. Coop slept fine last night but at 8:45 (45 min after the first feeding of the day) he woke up and has been uncomfortable for 7 hours straight. We tried everything we could think of. We sat him up, he had a diaper blow out, tried to do all of the PT tricks we see Janine do and nothing worked. Usually when he gets upset the next round of meds does the trick but he was bugged right through his noon meds. He was sweating so much we changed his bedding twice. His heart rate started to climb so Janine (PT) came in to do some magic and it only lasted a couple minutes so she came back later in the day and worked with him a second time and after an hour therapy he calmed down for about 20 minutes. Janine and I both feel that he is acting like his belly hurts. The resident is a little confused because he is moving the food through, there isn't extra air in his belly, Coop is already on a medication for reflux and he is pooping. So what else could be wrong? We ended up giving both Ativan and Morphine and he is now sleeping. Colby, the resident, also ordered a blood and urine work-up to look for any clues. He also hasn't had many wet diapers so we may be giving him some fluids as the night goes on.

Applying pressure to his belly
Speech therapy tried oral stimulation with a sucker to see how he would respond. He sucked his lip a couple times but didn't like the sucker in his mouth.
